Niobe Willow Tree
I was skeptical about how my local USPS was going to handle the delivery of a 5' tree... Much to my surprise both the box and tree arrived relatively quickly and unscathed! About the tree, it still had some leaves on it, but I was a bit dismayed at the sight of the less than straight trunk I was hoping for. However, not one to cast an ugly ducking aside, with the vigorous growth habit of this tree I am certain that it will quickly outgrow it's ugliness and evolve into a weeping queen.
It is hard to say if theses two willows will recuperate. There are no leaves on one tree, and maybe 3 leaves on the other. All of their leaves were at the bottom of the box. It took the Post office an extra week to deliver them. The 2 trees were in one box no water or light for about 2 weeks or so. The instructions indicate that that might be the their arrival condition. The late delivery was not Green Thumbs fault. But maybe UPS may have delivered them sooner. It is early fall now and I will not be able to tell if the trees are healthy until spring. So it is really hard to give an accurate review.
I HaVe a wet area in our field And it has been an issue for years. So I planted a 6 ft weeping willow in the area and a couple ginkgotrees in the area also. Can’t wait to see it flourish. Trees arrived healthy and happy.
Received the tree in great condition. It’s planted and still looking good. Can’t wait until it’s bigger.
